From the Editors Desk
Welcome to the latest issue of the High Tech AIDCourier. The first issue in 2009.
This last month seems to have been very slow for news in our industry. As we move further into January we are starting to see things pick up. Like many other industries we have been hit by the current economic climate. However, I am seeing things that suggest that companies need the technology more than ever. This could bode well for the industry if we are able to take advantage of it. Get your best marketing hats on and work out those ROI potentials.
